Robbie Mullen: A very unreliable witness and self-confessed racist, anti-Semite and Islamophobe
This morning at Courtroom 8 at the Old Bailey in Central London we witnessed the most astonishing confession by a man that under oath as a witness in a case that he himself contributed to bring to court. When asked why he joined National Action in 2015, Robbie Mullen said that joined National Action because 'he hates Blacks, Jews and Muslims'. If this is not an indictment against himself, I don't know what is.
Having been one of the most notorious and vociferous members of National Action, Robbie Mullen when asked why he didn't join National Front instead said that he didn't join National Front that he saw as a group of old men and that he was looking for action.
Despite the fact that National Action was finally proscribed, Robbie Mullen continued attending meetings and complaining that nothing was being done. As days went by, there was a turn of events. Robbie Mullen decided to turn against those he had joined and started a series of secretly recorded conversations - his former associates were not made aware of the fact that he was recording what they were saying and that he was instigating them to say something that even as a joke or said as a stupid remark under the influence of alcohol could put them in a very compromising position.
Robbie Mullen was a man on a mission and he came up with a series of statements linking his former associates with attempts to commit serious crimes. Paradoxically, despite the fact that he said that he believed that there was the real intention to commit serious crimes that involved loss of life, he failed to contact Police authorities. Robbie Mullen chose instead to contact Matthew Collins, former National Front member, now working for Hope Not Hate. From the moment he contacted Matthew Collins, Hope Not Hate started supplying important amounts of money to Robbie Mullen. There were monies for a passport, monies for daily expenses including transport, monies to pay for rented accommodation, computer hardware, a photographic camera and hotel rooms paid by Hope Not Hate. Some of the monies were delivered to him in paper envelopes and taken by him without any questions asked - according to what Robbie Mullen stated today at the Old Bailey pressed by barristers representing the interests of the accused.
According to Robbie Mullen, Hope Not Hate contacted and paid a solicitor an important amount of money to act on his behalf and it was the said solicitor who got in touch with Police Authorities. When it was decided that Robbie Mullen was going to act as main witness in the present trial, Police officers explicitly requested that Robbie Mullen was not going to talk anybody else about the investigation. Robbie Mullen was asked not to talk to Police officers not directly linked to the investigation, not to talk to his former associates of National Action and not to talk to Hope Not Hate.
Robbie Mullen completely disregarded the Police officers' request and went on talking with his former associates, with other Police officers and also passing information related to the case to representatives of Hope of Hot Hate including Matthew Collins who was not aware that Robbie Mullen was secretly recording conversations he had with representatives of Hope Not Hate. One such recorded conversations was heard this morning at the Old Bailey. When asked why he had recorded a conversation he had with Matthew Collins, Robbie Mullen couldn't come up with a proper answer.
Robbie Mullen has been on the payroll of Hope Not Hate since April 2018 presumably working as 'Researcher' but before that he had been taken monies given to him by Hope Not Hate. This beggars belief. Why would Hope Not Hate employ somebody that records private conversations they have with him? One has to ask what is Robbie Mullen's real agenda. Having publicly declared that he joined National Action 'because he hates Blacks, Jews and Muslims' was not one of his best moments in court. Whether the aim of his actions is to incriminate innocent people acting on false pretences and for personal gain or whether there is a master plan behind his actions, Robbie Mullen is a very unreliable witness.
